Apartment Q13

In my free time I enjoy to design furniture, kitchens and houses in Sketch-Up. Here is an example of a kitchen I designed. My idea was to design a cosy/country-like kitchen within an apartment. The design could be used for a student house or private use.

Microcosmos In the second semester of the first year at Luca school of arts in Ghent, I designed a foldable patisserie in which there is a possibility for one person to live in. In closed position it is not possible to use the patisserie, it is protected against burglary. However, it is possible to open certain parts sepretly. The glass ceiling creates an overall view of the workspace and by night you can enjoy looking at the stars and sky.

For this design I worked together with my internship mentor. We designed the whole house in wich I was assigned the desk/closset you see on the right. The wood type I choose for it is wenge. The closet has can open and ding movement computer or to

a part that you close with a slito close of the open it for use.

The closet includes storage for books and other administration as same counds for the drawers.

This bar was a request for private use in his own house. Within the bar there is a sink, 2 fridges and pace for tableware. In the cabin behind the bar are 2 large fridges and space for glasses. In this cabin, the doors can be slid inwards, the design within creates an interesting view what makes it natural to keep the doors open if desired.

The construction adjustments I made were the replacement of the stairs, a design of a new facade in the back of the house and I placed a basement for band repartition and jams, since the man of the couple was a drummer.

The bathroom used to be on the first floor but I moved it to the second floor instead. I focused on an easy route through the house in which everything is easily accusable and has an open view.
